Study Suggests Conspiracy Theorists Are More Positive & Reasonable Compared To Conventional Thinkers

illum

Here’s one that should make JREF* devotees froth at the mouth! We at The Swill Bucket generally keep comments closed to avoid cognitive infiltrators–and sesquipedalian misanthropes–but we thought it would be compassionate (even humorous) to give JREF advocates a chance to vent and hurl crude epithets at the authors –or people and ideas associated with them–in JREFrs’ distinct style of rabid verbal attack they somehow equate with intellectual discourse. However, I expect your typical JREF adherent won’t make it past the first paragraph anyway.

Study Suggests Conspiracy Theorists Are More Positive & Reasonable Compared To Conventional Thinkers

“A case study examining online commenting trends was performed by psychologists Michael J. Wood and Karen M. Douglas of the University of Kent that revealed so called 「conspiracy theorists」 are actually more reasonable & sensible than those who are considered conventionalists.

Not that long ago, practically anyone who thought outside of the box, questioned the official stories, or did any type of investigation into certain subjects was labeled a ‘conspiracy theorist.’ In fact, many of these people, including the majority of the writers here at Collective Evolution, are still considered conspiracy theorists by many even though the goal is simply to examine or verify the truth of something.”

VETERAN PLEADS: DO NOT BLINDLY SACRIFICE YOUR LIFE FOR YOUR COUNTRY! Author Publishes WWII Pilot Father’s Legacy and Warning

SACRAMENTO, CA, USA, October 19, 2014 /EINPresswire.com/ — SACRAMENTO, 19 October, 2014—The belief that it’s noble to support the nation’s military regardless of circumstances will perhaps always prevail. It’s a seductive patriotic ideal, but over the course of our nation’s history, the US military has been increasingly used to protect the interests of the rich and powerful rather than liberty and justice for all. Journalist Shawn Hamilton has written his new book, Be All You Can Be, as a wake-up call to the nation, using his WWII veteran father’s story as the revelry bugle.

A person who is willing to sacrifice his life ‘for his country’ is merely a dupe in the profit game of the military-industrial complex.”

— Major Ralph E.   Hamilton, 1976

 

A Kriegie’s Prayer –Ralph Hamilton

Featured

Oh, God, I ask of you in humble prayer,

As I lie in torment far from home,

Keep safe my loving family over there;

Make lighter theirs—this burden

Which they bear.

I ask not why this plan for war was lain,

Nor question your divine authority,

But couldn’t you have had the flak refrain

That last time I went down to

Strafe a train?

Oh, God, just slightly overflow thy cup,

And speed me from this vermin-prison’s bed.

Please, God, release me from

This land of Krupp

Before these God-damned bedbugs eat me up!

Note: Ralph wrote this under a dim night light, on toilet paper in the German prison camp at Moosburg. He said the bedbugs had chewed his wrists, neck, and ankles to a “painful mass of itching misery” and forced him from his bunk.

Released on March 24th, 2014 through Friesen Press:  Be All You Can Be

Be All You Can Be cover

“There is something sad about a person who blindly sacrifices his life ‘for his country,’ for he is unaware of the real issues. If a person can grasp the truth about war, it can’t help but color his thinking on such issues as draft dodging. The name draft dodger suggests the evasion of a just debt or obligation. In reality, a draft dodger is either a person who rejects military service on religious or moral grounds—or plainly doesn’t want to allow himself to be killed. Any of those reasons should be good enough, and I don’t think that he should be persecuted or prosecuted.

A person who is willing to sacrifice his life ‘for his country’ is merely a dupe in the profit game of the military-industrial complex. A man who has the courage to stand up against such twisted idealism and refuse to be sacrificed for profiteers is no coward. My opinion of the draft dodger differs from the opinion of many of my peers, but then, my generation is probably one of the biggest collections of fools on record.”

— Major Ralph E. Hamilton, WW2 Veteran, 1976

Graham Hancock: “Ancient Mysteries”

Hancock discusses, among other ideas, the possibility that the ancients of remote antiquity understood and encoded into myth and architecture a process called the “precession of the equinoxes,” a subtle astronomical phenomenon that completes one cycle in about 26,000 years.  Ancient Mysteries Video

The Real Matrix’s Hidden Truth

The Real Matrix’s Hidden Truth

By Peter J. Denney

“An error does not become truth by reason of multiplied propagation, nor does truth become error because no one will see it.”  -Mahatma Gandhi

“I would know the whole of the truth and make preparation for it.” –Patrick Henry

My neighbor, Frank, and I were chatting outside his house the other day. He’s become well aware of my passion for researching and writing on issues which are reported on television, and how I often offer “outside-the-box” perspectives on both past and current events. He has never taken me up on any of my challenges to check out my sources, and, most of the time, we simply agree to disagree.

We both agree, however, that the movie “The Matrix” is still one of the best “sy-fy” movies ever made. Frank has watched it several times. So, on this day, I decided to use this movie as a metaphor while we discussed our usual array of topics. Recently, he has come to suspect that something isn’t quite right, that maybe we are being mislead on some topics like the economy, for example. He’s begun to worry about his 401k…if it will be there for him and his family. “That’s the thorn in the back of your mind,” I replied, quoting the character Morpheus in the movie. I left him thinking that maybe he’s right to be suspicious…

Yonaguni 与那国島海底地形 (Yonaguni-jima Kaitei Chikei): underwater structures in Japan may indicate human culture is older than we think

Yonaguni underwater structure

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K4cItoDIHdQ

“The Yonaguni Monument is a massive underwater rock formation off the coast of Yonaguni, the southernmost of the Ryukyu Islands, in Japan. There is a debate about whether the site is completely natural, is a natural site that has been modified, or is a manmade artifact.[1][2]  The site is variably referred to as the “Yonaguni Underwater Formations” (与那国島海底地形, Yonaguni-jima Kaitei Chikei?) and the “Yonaguni Underwater Ruins” (与那国島海底遺跡, Yonaguni-jima Kaitei Iseki?) in Japanese.” (from Wikipedia)

District Attorney Jim Garrison exposes truth about JFK assassination in 1967

New Orleans District Attorney Jim Garrison prosecuted the only legal case in the assassination of President John Kennedy. He lost, of course, because th CIA was protecting certain witnesses and permanently silencing others. Still, Garrison was able to secure enough historic information in the public record that we can now form reasonable conclusions about what happened. What is so amazing is that Garrison is telling us this in 1967!

It took other researchers thirty or more years to reach similar conclusions. At the time, most citizens were simply intellectually or emotionally incapable of comprehending even a fraction of the truth Garrison revealed, and as a population we remain far too passive and naïve.

Hitler recognized this convenient truth as “The Big Lie (Große Lüge). Yet only four years after JFK was conveniently disposed of by “The Secret Team” (see Col. Fletcher Prouty), Garrison had essentially solved the mystery of who did it and why. Paid detractors and their unpaid volunteers continue to insult Garrison’s memory with the constant trivial dickering over inconsequential details (see Gerald Posner), yet this is what now passes for political discourse in the United States.

The media fawns and toadies that catered to the military-industrial complex Eisenhower warned us about as he was leaving office really outdid themselves in their trashing of Jim Garrison, resorting to all sorts of dirty tricks, illegal or otherwise. Considering that those few of us who have examined the evidence have little trouble understanding the forces who killed JFK, RFK, MLK along with the acronymically unknown, it appears that much of their hush money was primarily wasted on fools.

Jim Garrrison was one American male with balls of brass. He knew the truth about what happened in Dallas on November 22, 1963, and he tried to make people understand it even as his life was being threatened. He’s what I would call a hero if I engaged in that sport. He didn’t just stand up for what he believed in; any fool can do that right or wrong. Garrison verified the facts behind him, which made his pronouncements even more threatening, yet he shouted them to the nation anyway!

How many of us would do the same?
